You should have room for it in your motherboard and your PSU can certainly take it so why not throw it in your rig and use it for folding and PhysX? If your really not going to use it and have it just sit in your closet maybe sell it to a folder on here, win win.

I don't have access to the market place here lol.

But it is listed for sale on EVGA forums and Craigslist.

I would stick it in my case, but I don't think I really play any games with PhysX.

That actually makes me think of another question... do I need to pair my Twin Frozr II with another identical Twin Frozr II? Or can I SLI with any 560 TI?

Man that was fast.

This place rocks, and you guys rock. Thanks.

I suppose I shouldn't try overclocking the cards, or if I do, that I make sure that they are both OC'd identically? My current 560 is running comfortably at 950/1900/2100.

Most of those 560's with the Twin frozrII on them usually play games smoothly @1ghz

I could hit 1ghz by bumping my vcore up to 1.062 but it ran pretty hot. It was only bad on full load but I figure why worry, my processor is most likely bottlenecking me anyways.

what speed are you running your processor at?

I did some testing with my CPU and 560. I noticed no FPS gain from 4.0GHz > 4.6GHZ > 4.8GHZ

Now I wonder if it's the same with my 580.
